Welcome to Elevation Trail and the Footfeathers Show.  Today Gary David and I talk about pacing and his pacing adventure at the Vermont 100 miler last weekend.  We also discuss the lack of coverage for Vermont’s race, as well as most East Coast events, Grand Slam top contender, Nick Clark (Gary’s new BFF), Leadville 100, and a bunch of other stuff.  Hope you enjoy it and please feel free to comment – we live for comments!

Seconds Count – A Finish or Not?

Fort Collins, Colorado resident, Alex May did everything all the other Western States 100 finishers did.  He lined up at 5am at the start line in Squaw Valley, covered all the check points along the 100 miles of trail, ran around the Placer High School track, and crossed the finish line with people cheering loudly.  His status on the WS100 site?  “Dropped”.
